Yes like most 48 is the correct answer


something you might have missed (the number of arrows in the quiver is the actual number)


since i will never win cause the person who picks winners doesn't like me LOL i have decided to give out the tricks they use


so the 2nd equation most players said was wrong .... it is 43+ (4 x 5) = 63 ... note the 5 arrows used in the next 2 equations hence the 5 is used


the rest is easy


maybe add some differentiation and integration since people claim they easy the whole time and yes they are easy lol

43 + 43 - 43 = 43

43 + (4 x 5) = 63

(5 x 2) + 43 = 53

43 + 1 x 5 = 220

I didn't notice the different number of arrows btw, was watching on small screen, next time I'll open full size image))

funny, everybody calculated different way, but got 48))))

43  +   43  –  43 = 43

43    +   (y.y)      = 63         → y = 25   = 2.23606797749979

2√5 . (X.X) + 43 = 53        → X = 4√5   = 1.495348781221221

43 + 4√5 . 25   =  49.68740304976422


Respuesta  49.68740304976422

Helmet is 43 from first equation. There are 4 arrows on one quiver, and 5 on the other, in second. So q5=20/q4. In the 3rd, we get

(the axes are next to each other, which is implied multiplication, so x*x=x^2)

q5*x^2=10, so x^2=10/q5, so x^2=10/(20/q4)=q4/2, so x=sqrt(q4/2). The last expression is 43+x*q5=43+sqrt(q4/2)*(20/q4)=

43+10*sqrt(2/q4).

Possible answers that make the most sense would include q4 being any integer factor of 20, so 1,2,4,5,10,20, or if the 2 quivers were

intended to be identical, sqrt(20), leading to

43+10*sqrt(2)

43+10=53

43+5*sqrt(2)

43+2*sqrt(10)

43+2*sqrt(5)

43+sqrt(10)

43+2*5^(3/4) or 43+2*sqrt(5*sqrt(5))

which means the most plausible answer would be 53 since it is the only integer.

If the 2 axes were intended to be additive, the 3rd would become q5*(2*x)=10, so x=5/q5, and the final result is 43+x*q5=43+5=48, which

completely ignores the 2nd equation. This is the result of not properly specifying if the 2 quivers are the same thing, and not noticing that

the 3rd equation and the requested result don't require the solution of the 2nd equation at all.

Perdon confundi la simbologia

43 + 43 – 43 = 43

43 + (y.y) = 63 → y = 2√5 = 2.23606797749979

2√5 . (2X) + 43 = 53 → X = √5/2 = 1.118033988749895

43 + √5/2 . 2√5 = 48

Respuesta  48
